Latest lens Purchase - DA* 60-250

I have broken down and ordered the DA* 60-250 f/4 from Adorama. I think I got a really good deal @ US $930.55 which included a 3 year accidental Drops and Spills Insurance.

Since I am perfectly happy with my K-3 and have a long way to go before I master even half of it's capabilities, I doubt I will get the FF for at least a few years. This lens should complete my APSC lineup and the lineup suits my style of shooting and I love all of these lenses - Tamron 17-50 f/2.8, Pentax DFA 50mm f/1.4, Pentax DFA 100 mm WR f/2.8, Pentax DA* 50-135 and now the DA* 60-250 - Not a true wide angle lens, but I really don't shoot much wide angle.

Based on the forum members reviews and what else I have read about this lens, I am sure I will be more than happy with it as it is considered one of Pentax's legendary zoom lenses

Great purchase man :-) I bought this lens 2 years ago and it is absolutely amazing. Sharp, WR, well built, and feels solid. While on my last trip to Malta, I used this lens extensively.
Adding two pfotos from capital city Valletta.

That is s a great deal ($930.55) ! This is about the cheapest I have seen it selling for so far brand-new. I hope the prices stay that way until Christmas, because that is when I plan on getting mine. How easy is it to hand hold, I heard it's kind of heavy ?
